After getting dressed, as you pose and preen in front of the mirror, you realise that your tummy is protruding. The next thing you do is to change the dress or wear a tummy tucker. But we all know how uncomfortable tummy tuckers can be. So how about buying clothes that hide your tummy? Here are 10 ways you can do so without a tummy tucker.
Don’t Wear Tight Garments: It is always best to highlight your assets. If your tummy sticks out, don’t wear tight tops or garments that are fitted from the waist. Go for leggings that accentuate the legs and not the area around the tummy.
Layering = Miracles: Whether you have heavy hips or tummy, layering effectively hides the problem area. Blazers, kimonos and jackets are a few options. The longer your cardigan, the longer and leaner you will appear. Avoid crop shrugs and jackets.
Wear Dark Colours: Go for darker hues like black, brown, greys and blues. Brighter colours attract attention.
Don’t Emphasize Your Belly: Avoid wearing waist belts or anything that enhances the area around your tummy. It will make your belly look bigger than usual.
Wear Peplums: To conceal your stomach, peplum tops or peplum high-waist skirts are options worth trying. They are very much in trend and can be accessorized well. Don’t try both together though.
Try High-Waist Outfits: Low-rise pants can lead to bulging around your waist, which looks unflattering. Stick to mid-rise or high-waist pants and jeans that will help suck in your stomach.
Asymmetric Tops: The best way to disguise your tummy is to go for asymmetric tops or kurtas. Long asymmetric kurtis paired with pencil pants look great. They basically create vertical lines, which in turns hides your protruding tummy.
Don’t Tuck In Shirts: Every time you wear a shirt to work, you end up tucking it in your pants or trousers. Stop doing so. The shirt then seems fitted at the waist and the bulge shows clearly. Just stop!
Stick To Fabrics That Don’t Cling: Some fabrics cling to your body and enhance parts that you want to hide. Avoid fabrics like spandex, satin and nylon. Prefer flowy garments and fabrics like cotton, khadi, georgettes and raw silk.
Prefer Tops and Kurtis With Ruching On The Belly: A-line salwar kameezes and anarkali suits are ideal to hide your belly. Go for kurtis that are pleated or have gathers around the bust. Wrap dresses or maxi dresses are also a great option.
